Ladybug down a stem.
Black, quiet evening.
Thank you for this, Dirk.

Thank you for your haiku, Debbie.
the ladybug walks
across the hemisphere
in the early twilight
the pain of separation dwells
in the painting of black and white

rides up and down
on the mirror
I readjust my face
picking up the shinny hair

Thank you, Magyar!
Enjoyable, quiet, intimate haiku which captures a moment with clarity and simplicity! Nicely done!
Thank you, Bruce. Glad you enjoyed it!
Wonderful, as in full of wonder!
Thank you, Jean!
A lovely way to spend an afternoon…busy doing nothing :)
I love this. The contained intensity of it, the sense of time slowing down. (Edward Thomas' 'Adlestrop' comes to mind.)

Thank you, Helen! Love the "slug" ku.
If I were putting together an anthology, this poem would be in it. Impressive.
Thank you, Greg. Appreciate your support.
Aw, this is so lovely, Dan. We spent a lot of our time as kids investigating insects in the garden and this brings me right back. Oh for the days when kids were fascinated by ladybirds/bugs! :)
Thank you, Marion!
Thank you, Anitha!
